Air India will increase flights from Delhi to Vancouver, Canada, from three weekly to daily starting 31 August. The airline says the flight increase is a response to growing traffic between India and Canada, plus the return to service of the widebody Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft featuring a three-class configuration; first, business and economy.
Air India, following its acquisition by Tata Group, is now deploying aircraft that were grounded for prolonged periods due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other reasons.
“The progressive restoration of these aircraft allows Air India to increase schedule resilience and support frequency and network increases over the coming months,” the airline said.
“This increase in our frequency between Delhi and Vancouver is very welcome for many reasons. It is another sign of recovery from the pandemic and caters to strong customer demand. More importantly, it marks the first step in restoring Air India’s fleet and international network,” said Air India MD and CEO Campbell Wilson.
